#1 I was completely awake laying in bed - with my eyes closed, I vividly saw blocks in a row, each containing a letter or symbol. Some familiar, some unfamiliar. Some written backwards, upside down, etc.
Each would change seemingly random to another character, independent of the others.
I opened and closed my eyes to be sure I was awake and it would still be there.
They last 10-60 seconds.
Then it stopped. Then...
#2 Yesterday, waking, not yet out of bed, eyes closed, I saw what seemed like countless layers of film wrapping around within my eyes, with my eyelids involuntarily fluttering slightly until, when aligned, the streams of color formed a vividly sketched drawing of a stout muscular man. With an emblem on his chest. Not like Superman comic book stuff. Rather lines that formed some symbol. I watched as the picture hovered than the countless streams of film layers began to spin the image away. And it was gone.
It always comes silently. I have no emotional reactions other than intrigue.
I don't imagine grandiose possibilities like "it could be psychic messages from planet XYZ" or "my third eye is opening and I am being given a message from an great astral being" kind of stuff. No disrespect meant there for those who believe in those kind of phenomana. It just doesn't appear to be that type of thing.
But what is it? The images are SO vivid and so inarguably not imagined phenomena.
Background: For what it is worth, I have always paid attention to the colors and blobs when I close my eyes. We all have those vague temporary pins and rods reaction to light when we close our eyes. Just look at a lightbulb for 2 seconds then close your eyes. Those are like fading negative images and very normal.
This is not normal. It is hi-definition animated images within my closed eyes.
